Lust for Love

Rekindling Intimacy and Passion in Your Relationship

By Pamela Anderson and Shmuley Boteach

  • Hardback
  • £25.00

Pamela Anderson and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach guide readers on a path to healthier lust and intimacy in the bedroom in LUST FOR LOVE.

An unlikely pair of voices-the world's most recognizable beauty icon and "America's rabbi"-comes together to diagnose how meaningful, passionate sex is on the decline in Western culture, and what is necessary to save it.

Sex is dying in America. Inundated with sex and starved for it, obsessed with it yet clueless about it, we are slowly forgetting how to make love. The crisis of modern sexuality is seen in high divorce rates, in the degradation of sexuality through pornography, and tasteless displays of empty, counterfeit erotica. Most of all, it's seen in sexless marriages and platonic relationships where cybersex has become more addictive than the real thing. Sex has become so trivialized, coarsened, and vulgarized that couples no longer feel its pull. The once powerful and irresistible magnetism of sex is being diluted and drained.

The authors propose replacing the 1960s' sexual revolution with a new sensual revolution, a rediscovery of intimacy that encourages and ennobles human relationships, elevates healthy lust, and gets us from looking up from the glowing screens of our smartphones to the people around us, most especially the people we love the most.

LUST FOR LOVE embraces the idea that what our most important relationships need most is lust. It is necessary to rediscover what's sexy again, how to bring back romance, and to understand that in addition to love, we need lust to repair our unfulfilling sex lives and broken relationships. LUST FOR LOVE proposes a return to what lovemaking was always meant to be: a desire to know and experience another person in the deepest possible way.

Knowing Your Value (Revised)

Mika Brzezinski
Authors:
Mika Brzezinski

A revised and expanded edition of Mika Brzezinski's Knowing Your Value-her bestselling self-help title about women and negotiating, featuring interviews and advice from the likes of Sheryl Sandberg, Elizabeth Warren and many others-now with updated statistics, fresh interviews, and powerful new material about knowing your value in both professional and personal relationships.Why are women so often overlooked and underpaid? In her bestselling 2011 manifesto Knowing Your Value--now updated and expanded with all-new material--Mika takes an in-depth look at how women can achieve their deserved recognition and financial worth.Prompted by her own experience as co-host of Morning Joe, Mika interviews a wide range of women on their experiences moving up in their fields. Mika shares the surprising stories of power players such as presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett, comedian Susie Essman, writer and director Nora Ephron, Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg, television personality Joy Behar, and many more. She also gets honest answers from the likes of Donny Deutsch, Jack Welch, and other thought leaders about why women are paid less, and what pitfalls women face-and play into. In the new 2018 edition, Mika updates the book throughout with current statistics about women's compensation rates and leadership roles; she adds new interviews with high-profile business leaders; and adds an entirely new chapter about "knowing your value" in personal relationships, in which she will discuss for the first time her recent divorce. Knowing Your Value blends personal stories with the latest cutting-edge research on why many women don't negotiate their compensation, why negotiating aggressively usually backfires, the real reasons why the gender wage gap persists, and what can be done about it. Written in Mika's brutally honest, funny, and self-deprecating style, Know Your Value is a vital book for professional women of all ages.

Depersonalization Disorder is when a person experiences a feeling of being detached from life around them and sometimes emotionally numb. It is often a symptom of another disorder such as anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder and particularly panic disorder, or of an illness like epilepsy or migraine, but also occurs in its own right and among users of certain drugs. CBT is an effective treatment.PRAISE FOR THE SERIES: 'The best consumer-friendly CBT-based books&All are very thorough.' Observer 'The Overcoming series just keeps getting better and better.'

Judaism for Everyone

Shmuley Boteach
Authors:
Shmuley Boteach

In Judaism for Everyone Shmuley Boteach imagines a future in which his religion provides "a locus of spirituality for men and women of all faiths." This sounds like a pretty good future. "In some religions the purpose of life is to perfect oneself," Shmuley begins. "For Judaism the purpose of life is the healing of the world." So, in the same way that Buddhist and Hindu traditions have spawned global interest in Eastern meditation and yoga, Judaism's broad concern for the holiness of this world may catch on with gentiles. Particular traditions of observance such as the Sabbath, for instance, may help gentiles to heal the alienation and lower the noise level of modern life. Throughout the book, Shmuley describes Judaism in terms that are both startlingly fresh and strangely commonsensical, a balanced perspective that will appeal to many readers.
